Friends are a group of people that is very important to us. Each friend has his/her own characteristic, he/she might be an intelligent , has sense of humor or be a reliable person. In my opinion, I believe that reliable is the most important characteristic to be my friend with two supporting reasons.
First, reliable friends are easier to work with. The reliable friends tend to have more responsible in their work, and they try to deliver quality works to the group. For example, when I studied in faculty of computer engineering last year. A friend and I were assigned to build a minicar robot to drive by tracking the line on the floor. The building processes were included writing a programming code to compose the minicar components. I was responsible for writiting a programming code and my friend was responsible to build the actual robot. After two days of he was assigned, he called me that he already finish his part and invited me to test with him. I was surprised on how fast he had done. Therefore, I knew that this guy is an reliable friend that help the group assignment finish effectively. This is an example of why reliable friends are important.
Second, reliable friends are the people we can trust. I not mean just trusted working colleagues but trusted friend. For instance, last month, I brought a new washing machine but I had a problem about setting up it. I had no idea who can do this, so I called and advise my friend who live a few blocks away. He volunteered to help me on setting up the machine even he is pretty busy. After long hours of configuration, he finally finished the setup, and I can wash my clothes with the new washing machine since then. I knew that he had never done this before, but I trust him that he is the one that can help me when I run to the trouble. That is why, reliable friends, friends that we can trust are very important.
In conclusion, reliable friends are a type of friend we should have. They can work with us more easily and more effectively, and they can be our trusted people when we have any problems. So, we should try to make good relationships and be the reliable people for other, then we wil also gain more reliable friends in the future.
